Marlins' Steve Cishek strikes out two in nonsave situation Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) Marlins closer Steve Cishek racked up two strikeouts in a 1-2-3 ninth inning to finish off his team's 6-2 win over the Nationals Sunday.

Cishek was rocked in his first outing of the season and allowed one run in his subsequent appearance but has since pitched four perfect innings while recording three strikeouts. However, he owns just one save this season while posting a 8.44 ERA and 4:2 K:BB ratio in 5 1/3 innings.


Marlins closer Steve Cishek retires out side for first save of season


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/24/2015) Marlins closer Steve Cishek recorded his first save of the season on Friday, retiring out the side in order against the Nationals.

"The first one is always the toughest I feel like," Cishek said to the Miami Herald. "[The diving stop Prado made for the first out in the ninth Friday] was an unbelievable play. I hung a slider and it kind of backed up on me. [Yunel] Escobar put a good swing on it. I turned around and saw the ball sitting on the ground after [Prado] stopped it. He picked it up and threw him out. That fires you up."

Cishek's season got off to a rocky start, allowing four runs in 1 1/3 innings (32.73 ERA). But he's now thrown three straight scoreless innings to lower his ERA to 10.38.


Marlins' Steve Cishek still waiting for first save


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) Marlins closer Steve Cishek pitched a perfect ninth inning on Wednesday, but he's still looking for his first save of the year.

The Marlins have won just three games, and two have been by leads too big to give Cishek a save situation. The third was a tenth-inning walk-off win.

Cishek blew a save in his only opportunity. His ERA is currently 19.29, down from 108.00 after his first appearance and 33.75 after his second.   


Marlins' Steve Cishek unable to hold late lead vs. Rays


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2015) The struggles continued for Marlins closer Steve Cishek on Friday. He was charged with a blown save after allowed one run on two hits in one inning. He struck out one.

Cishek, who registered 39 saves last season, allowed a leadoff double to Brandon Guyer, who eventually scored the game-tying run on a groundout. He lowered his ERA from 108.00 to 33.75 despite being charged with his first blown save of the season on Friday.

"I felt really good tonight, like 30 times better than I did the other night. I thought I made good pitches," Cishek said, per the Sun Sentinel. "Can't do anything about that. Hats off to Guyer. He put good wood on it, shot it down the line, legged it out and from there, they just kept battling. Scrappy inning for them. Really nothing I could do about it. I felt like I went out there with my best stuff."


Marlins' Cishek on 108.00 ERA: All that matters to me is saves


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Marlins closer Steve Cishek isn't concerned after struggling in a non-save situation Tuesday against the Braves. Cishek was charged with four runs in one-third of an inning during a 12-2 loss.

“It didn’t even matter," Cishek said, per The Palm Beach Post. "The game was out of hand. If we were winning that would be an issue. I just didn’t have my good stuff. It wasn’t a lack of focus."

Cishek has a 108.00 ERA following his disastrous outing, but he also isn't concerned about that number.

“All that matters to me is the saves number,” he said. “That means we win ballgames.”

Marlins' Steve Cishek hoping to stay strong all season


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2015) Marlins closer Steve Cishek is hoping to remain strong all season after suffering some fatigue in 2014, according to the Miami Herald

"This off season I really wanted to rest up," Cishek said. "Last year was a grind for me. I started off throwing a lot in the beginning to middle of the year and got into a rut, kind of ran out of gas for a second." 

In order to combat that fatigue, Cishek said he wanted to ensure he had a strong offseason. "This off-season I wanted to make sure I got in the proper work to handle the workload and be able to perform well from start to finish."

The 28-year-old is coming off a season in which he posted a 3.17 ERA over 65 1/3 innings. While Cishek expressed concern about fatigue, he was actually better in the second half of the season. Cishek saw his strikeout rate jump, walk rate fall and posted a 2.33 ERA in 27 innings during the second half. He had one rough stretch in June, when he allowed nine runs over seven appearances, but was otherwise strong all season. He'll enter the year set to resume his duties as the team's closer.
